June 15 Root Chakra; June 16 Second Chakra – June YTT
June 16th, 2011 by Lia
"vam vam vam...." was our mantra for the second "sacral" chakra today. As we went through our asana practice this morning, Jackie broke down what this chakra involves.

Today started out with a great bit of luck. My alarm clock did not go off at 5:30am as I set it, however, I miraculously woke up at 6am. You see, our first yoga class starts at 7am and most of the other students will be waking up at 6:25am in time for a bit of fruit and tea, but... [read more]
